Radiology is a branch of medical specialty that involves the use of medical imaging techniques to diagnose and treat diseases and injuries. It encompasses various imaging modalities such as X-rays, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasound, mammography, nuclear medicine, and positron emission tomography (PET).

The radiology department, which is driven by a dedicated team of radiographers and radiologist consultants, plays a critical role in a hospital by providing diagnostic imaging services essential for identifying and diagnosing medical conditions.

The Radiology services available in UTAR Hospitals are:

· Digital Radiography (General X-Ray)

· 128 Slices Computed Tomography (CT-Scan)

· 1.5 Tesla Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

· High end Ultrasound

· Tomosynthesis Mammography (3D Mammogram)

· Bone Densitometry

· Basic Image-Guided Interventional Radiology


To enhance efficiency, the Radiology Department in UTAR Hospital is equipped with a modern and updated PACS system. Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS) is a digital imaging technology used to store, retrieve, and distribute medical images and associated patient information. With PACS, digital images are available immediately after acquisition, eliminating the time-consuming process of developing and processing film. This streamlined workflow allows for faster image retrieval, interpretation, and reporting, leading to improved patient care and reduced wait times.
